Ranging/Photodetection Options for Lidar

03 November 2022 by Dr Xiaoxi He
There are two common kinds of ranging (photodetection) options for lidar systems: one is time of flight (TOF) and another is frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW). TOF is adopted by more players than FMCW but there is an increasing number of start-ups working on the FMCW approach. This premium article provides an introduction to the two different lidar ranging options and detailed analysis. IDTechEx opinions are also given regarding the future lidar trends.
